Let me launch right in by writing about some of the amazing small businesses that I met at FarGo Village Vegan Festival last weekend. FarGo hosted their bi-annual vegan fair which is always a massive favourite of mine – I make a point of going there to support the tenants and FarGo themselves as much as possible.
What better way to learn more about your favourite independent bookshop than to talk to the owner! The person who created a wonderful writing haven for me – the genius (?) behind it all…
I did something today that I thought I’d never be able to do again. I took part in GoApe in Coventry. My body screamed “Don’t do it!”, my mind screamed “You’re crazy!” but this tiny part of me looked back at my scouting days and said…
“You’ve just got to try…”
I wanted to do a little bit of a life update as I’d not done one for a while! Also last weekend me and some of my favourite nerds went to a Harry Potter Supper Club and Quiz in Coventry, so I thought I’d write about that too. Because why not?
This post is about a gifted experience courtesy of Bubble Boba UK – Coventry.
So many of us are obsessed with Bubble Tea nowadays but not so many of us take the time to figure out where it comes from, how it’s made and what it contains! I had the absolute pleasure of organising and partaking in the first ever Bubble Tea Master Class with Bubble Boba UK* who treated my blogger pals and I to an exciting Easter experience where we learned how to make bubble tea!
My new favourite nerd heaven, Fantayzia Designs, invited me to play with their retro games consoles and check out their nostalgic treasures. I sat for a few hours and have to say it’s now my absolute favourite for nerdy nostalgia and creations at FarGo Village, Coventry.
I think we’ve established many times that I am super awkward when it comes to being put in front of a camera. I envy some of my friends to whom it comes naturally – watching them swing around at their professional photoshoot, laughing and posing. They make it look so easy but then suddenly it’s my turn… and I freeze like a rabbit in head-lights.
It was lovely to finally get to a smaller convention in 2018. I am used to going to the MCM Comic Con in Birmingham or London, and sometimes they can be a little overwhelming. However, at Stratford Comic Con* the room was bustling with the same lovely atmosphere of a larger con, but without the annoying queues! There are always perks to visiting a smaller comic con…
For me, Christmas isn’t about “hauls”… It’s about giving back, and trying to spread a little joy! So for my Christmas countdown I’ve decided to promote some of my favourite Coventry local businesses and beyond in my new Geeky Christmas Countdown!
These are people who I genuinely want to affiliate myself with and endorse fully. They are brands I love, local and distant, that I have worked with before, I know the owners of, or I just feel deserve your time! I decided to write my shortlist of 12 Nerdy Gifts for Geeks on the countdown to Christmas.
Bubble Boba UK invited me to sample from ANY of their array of warm winter drinks. How could I possibly say no? I tried their Halloween drink a few weeks ago and it’s not often I do collaborations with a brand so quickly in succession but for this, I made an exception!
Bubble Boba UK* also gave me an exclusive off-menu trial drink just to tell all of you PLUS they have a new Christmas Winter Waffle which is the cutest! Just take a look at this…
